Ex-private investigator Robin Llywelyn wakes up handcuffed to a hospice bed, full of morphine and with a fading memory as the cancer closes in. Unfortunately, bad detectives leave a lot of loose ends. Prosecuted for crimes he can't remember committing and pursued by cops and criminals alike for deals he has no recollection of doing. Llywelyn's last case sees him in a race against the reaper to score the final haul - and find out if he is the villain he appears to be.

Professional reviews

"Nominated for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Writing `It is bleak, witty, engaging, curiously moving and an absolute delight to read' THE TIMES ‘Dark, bleak, sordid, sinister and very, very funny’ GUARDIAN ‘A crime caper with echoes of Ealing comedy, shades of James Ellroy and even a touch of Samuel Beckett…laced with dark humour and strangely life-affirming’ INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY"
